Yes there is great corruption... but the only way to fix it, is by electing those who will honestly try and do so.
By restoring the Constitution, and amending it, to reform political campaign financing, and placing clear limits on the access of lobbyists, etc...
If I was ever elected to the Senate, I would be one voice, and how I would vote is very clear... I do not make vague generalities to win you over.. I tell it as I see it, and sure.. I may lose for it.. but I will not lie, or take positions without clarity on what I mean and intend to stand for, and do.
The problem in our nation... is coruption.. has been legalized by mechanisms, and simple means... but rairly bribes...
it used to be bribes... nowadays, its gifts, and donations, sex, and promises for jobs, and special treatment in endless ways....
Coruption by any name... still stinks.
I am not special... no sir.. but I will not be corupted by money, or special gifts or promises... so hey... maybe im nuts... but I actually care more about the Constitution and all of our freedom, than I do about personally getting rich.
